I enjoyed this buzzy busy little restaurant especially the yummy Primitivo for £23 and my friend enjoyed the rabbit tagliatelle, the puddings were quite good too and our £60 bill not bad for Balham BUT my prawn and courgette pasta was rather tasteless and had scarily flabby white prawns. They looked as if they had been defrosted but not cooked... More

We love coming to Caminata! It is a great local restaurant with lots of choice. Delicious pizzas and pasta. Speedy service and lovely staff (we had a great chat with Giuseppe)! Highly recommended- we will be back.

First time eating here last week. It's a great little local, with wonderful staff and amazing food. It was fully booked but we sat at the bar whilst they found us a table and entertained us whilst we waited. Will be back soon.

We tried this for the first time last night as have just moved in round the corner and loved the place! Lovely, small, intimate Italian on Bedford Hill ran by a great team. Food great and fantastic value for money. Will definitely return for more Limoncello and to try the pizzas as they looked amazing!! Make sure you book though... More
